Tips On Laying Garden Turf

Posted on September 9, 2014 at 2:29 pm

Need tips on laying turf? Look no further, we’re here to help! Check out our suggestions below and put them to practice.

Before you do anything else, start of by laying the first piece of turn down the longest straight edge. Then butt and fold the neighbouring turf next to it and expect shrinkage, if you try and stretch the turfing at this stage there will be gaps when it’s bedded in.

Use the back of a spade to tap down the turf and ensure the roots are in good contact with the soil. If you notice a dip, then add/remove soil as needed. Don’t use small sections of turf around the edges of your lawn as they will dry out faster.
